Barbara Hazen, Mill Valley resident/photographer and The Image Flow student, will be showcasing her series Time Piece at diPietro Todd from June 7 to September 7.
“Photography is a tool for me to tell a story. My ambition is to show viewers that beauty can be found in many unlikely places. I am looking for character in someoneâ€™s face, a unique location, or an unusual item left for flea markets. I am drawn to the many things in life that are often over-looked or ignored. With the found objects I photograph, my goal is to encourage viewers to be curious and to observe the bit of mystery in all things, to bring light and life to that which we donâ€™t understand. The Time Piece series is an example of that ambition. Having collected old watch parts for a number of years, I began to explore their unique beauty in still life images. Breaking out of the assumption that this was all these items had to offer in terms of photography, I began to play with various methods and effects of motion, light and water. This freedom to literally, â€˜playâ€™ with these discarded watch parts gave them new meaning and intriguing beauty that one would not normally associate with these inanimate objects.”
